Banksy Does New York


A London hipster opens in Chelsea next week. One critic laments:

It’s hard to know which celebrity artist to dislike more, sculptor Damien Hirst and his  jackass affinity for labeling every new work, “his most mature yet”, or graffiti artist Banksy and his seemingly endless juvenile commentary on art.  In a head to head match, it’s unclear who would win, though Banksy’s splash page directed at the collectors who recently purchased he work at record breaking prices reading  “I can’t believe you morons actually buy this shit.” certainly gives Hirst a run for his money.

But Brad Pitt loves him!
